Installed from:    Compiled sources

In my opinion, the panel should not be affected by the desktop cube. Instead, the cube should spin behind it while the panel stays at its position.

The current behavior is esp. weird when changing the desktop through the panel applet: You see the applet moving away, and stopping again under your mouse. Of course, the behavior I desire should be an opt-in configuration option.

I think it makes sense for the panel (more like, a panel; if you add more, they should behave in the same way) to move with the cube; especially so if you have a task manager widget set to "only show tasks from the current desktop".

The feature requested by Stefan will be configurable. But it will be default on for animate desktop switching (ctrl+f1-4/pager) and not be available in cube mode (ctrl+f11)
